Yeh’s Bakery has been around in Flushing for a very long time, and is a staple for many birthdays of Asian Americans who grew up in Queens. Though this Taiwanese bakery is most well known for its Boston pie (picture a lighter, fluffier, spongier Boston creme), I love coming here for the birthday cakes, which meet the Asian gold standard for baked goods and pastries: airy, delicate, and lightly sweetened. The cakes also come topped with fresh fruit. The strawberry and green tea flavors are my go-to orders - the strawberry cake reminds me of a light strawberry shortcake, whereas the matcha cake tones down the sweetness even more and adds a hint of bitterness.
